And now, for something completely different! (ten points to whoever gets that reference) Right before the Boy got me my 105mm lens, I bought myself a Lensbaby Control Freak in Hong Kong. Lensbabies are lenses with a creative spin. They are advertised as being fun and different from traditional lenses. Lensbabies allow you to cut the field of focus and to be able to take photos which can have very extreme and unusual blurry areas. If you are a freak about sharpness, lensbabies are not for you. Even the sharpest...

*Warning: A bit dry if you are not interested in lens shopping* This is the most professional lens I own. It was gifted to me as an early birthday present from the Boy. We were in Macau, staying at Galaxy Macau. Here is the post of the trip: Galaxy Macau, House of Dancing Water, and Ice World Venetian.That night as we were getting ready to go to sleep, I found a nicely wrapped present which contained an even more beautiful lens.When I was an intern with Elisa B Photography, I...

This post will concern a variety of topics, heads up! Fair warning: I will talk about lenses, music, and vulnerability.   First up are lenses: I want a macro. I want a macro lens SO badly. However, they are ridiculously expensive and so I must pine for now. I have my eye on the Nikon 105mm. Since I have a large interest in macro photography, I feel like I need to go for the best of the best rather than settle for an off-brand.   Nikon 105mm   The only...

So I've once again lapsed in my output of blog posts... But now my internship is over for all intents and purposes (is it bad that I wanted to write all intensive purposes?) and all I have is one more session of housekeeping, so hopefully I'll be able to post a bit more often... Well, I promised a review of my 55-200mm zoom and here it is!    I'll be completely honest, I was a little disappointed with it. It's autofocus is a bit slow and takes awhile to figure...

I hope I'm keeping you on your toes about when I'm going to post next. Now that I've got some new lenses, I figure that I might as well demonstrate what they can do! As a refresher, I have purchased a refurbished Nikon 55-200mm 1.4-5.6 f and a Pro-Optic 8mm fish eye lens (I also picked up a new carrying pack as well as a flash!).     I might as well start with the fish eye because it's so much fun! I have to admit when I first received...

So, I lied. The whole one-a-day didn't happen this week. I'm going to go ahead and blame the photography internship! Time well-spent and fun but not conducive to dedicating time to the blog... But I am currently chock-full of new information regarding lens shopping for my D5000. Awesome AWESOME camera although it doesn't pair with some lenses because it doesn't have an auto-focus (AF) motor in the actual body and so in order for auto focus to work, it needs to have a lens that has an AF motor built...
